Thid book identifies and describes the cultural and linguistic elements that have made the Japanese unique in the way they perceive and respond to the environment and all of their relationships. The key element in their character and personality derives from the vowel-heavy Japanese language...resulting in them thinking holistically, emphasizing emotional intelligence, and producing quality products...all traits that few Westerners have. It is an excellent read for anyone interested in Japan for any reason.

Meet the Author

Boyé Lafayette De Mente has been involved with Japan, China, Korea and Mexico since the late 1940s as a member of a U.S. intelligence agency, student, journalist, editor and author working out of Tokyo, Seoul, Hong Kong, Singapore and Mexico City. He is a graduate of Jochi University in Tokyo, and The American Institute for Foreign Trade (in 1953), now Thunderbird School of Global Management, in Glendale, Arizona, USA.

De Mente wrote the first ever books on the Japanese way of doing business (Japanese Etiquette and Ethics in Business in 1959 and How to Do Business in Japan in 1962), and was the first to introduce the now commonly used Japanese terms wa, nemawashi, kaizen, tatemae-honne, shibui, sabi and wabi to the outside business world!

His 70-plus other books run the gamut from language learning to the night-time "pink" trades in Japan, the role of bars, cabarets and geisha houses in business, the sensual nature of Oriental cultures, male-female relations, and understanding and coping with the Chinese, Japanese, Korean and Mexican mindset in business and social situations.

He has also written extensively on American culture. His latest book: CULTURAL FAILURES THAT ARE DESTROYING THE AMERICAN DREAM!
